Thursday, I am grateful...

...for compliments from complete strangers.

I know I'm, once again, a little late posting an entry. I'm under the weather. I'm sorry.

On Thursday, on my way to work, I was laughed at by some teenagers in the metro station. This was not the first time. For some reason, teenagers laugh at me in this city. And no, I'm not being paranoid either. It was almost something out a movie. This chick pointed at me and laughed a big belly laugh, "HA HA HA, LOOK AT HER!". I didn't say anything, as usual. However, I walked away thinking that this really doesn't bother me. And I was grateful that I didn't let such a comment bug the hell out of me like it did in the past.

Moments later, I was standing on the escalator. The man beside me, who sounded a bit drunk, turned to me and said:

"I just want you to know that you are very beautiful and I hope you have a wonderful day."

Thank you, stranger.
